J. S. Bach’s cantata O angenehme Melodei has only survived as a fragment. It can however be reconstructed because we have the wedding cantata BWV 210 O holder Tag, erwünschte Zeit , which is a later parody version of it. The text and three recitatives are completely different from the wedding cantata. This first edition of a reconstruction by the harpsichordist Alexander Ferdinand Grychtolik provides a possibility of presenting this so called sponsor cantata in a form suitable for practical use in today’s concert life.
